Creamy Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken Tacos - These tacos are easy to make and are perfect for those busy nights you don't have time to cook for the family.

Hola mis amigos! 

Are you ready for a stupid easy recipe for some amazing chicken tacos your whole family will love?

Good because that is what I am bringing you today! 

I love one pot meals that just about make themselves, and this fits that bill to a T. Aside from the chopping of toppings, which are all optional, this recipe can be made in your sleep. Or in the morning while you are drinking your coffee, making breakfast, and packing lunches.

Yup, that damn easy!

I big ol' huge puffy heart these kinds of recipes 💗

Speaking of super easy one pot/one pan recipes, I have a question for you. I am thinking about doing a cookbook and thought that one pot/one pan recipes would be the perfect cookbook for y'all. It would be one pot, one pan, skillet, slow cooker, and pressure cooker recipes. 

What do you think? 

I just know that I have really kind of become obsessed with creating recipes that don't use every pan in the kitchen. Sheet pan meals dinners have realllllly become a favorite. Things like my Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas, Sheet Pan Mini Meatloaves, and even my Southwestern Style Sheet Pan Breakfast, happen at our house every month. It is so nice to make an easy meal that has almost nothing to clean up! 

Just ask Kevin.

He appreciates not ending up with dishpan hands 😄

But, about this recipe, OhhEmmmGeeee people! 

Stupid easy and wicked good! A great combo in my book. 

It is also super easy to tailor to your families taste. You can use mild to hot salsa, and mild to hot green chiles.


We love everything but the kitchen sink on ours. But, if you have picky eaters, or just don't feel like chopping, these tacos are just as good with a bit of cheese and lettuce. Maybe a little sliced or diced avocado?

Yes, please use avocado. I developed an allergy to them a couple of years ago and miss them terribly 😔

I will just live vicariously through you OK?
